Multiple Carousels?

Recommended Posts

I was hoping someone would know if it's possible to place multiple carousels on the same page. My goal is to create a portfolio page that uses up to 5 carousels. Each carousel would need to pull from a different category. I assume this would involve PHP coding, which is fine. My hope is that this can be accomplished using hooks in the base child theme. Any thoughts? I'm not quite sure where to start on this one.

I've never seen anyone do multiple carousels, but it could theoretically be done using multiple look-alike carousel plugins. I could be wrong, but don't think the current carousel can be repeated successfully. Of course, I will continue to look into it.

Any update on this? I need to put at least 3 carousels on a page. I'd like to use Pagelines native functionality (this is really the reason I bought the theme, and its rather frustrating that it can't be done!).

Hi Smile, This isn't something you can do "Out of the Box" and would require the use of custom code, I would recommend you contact the Pagelines Pros. They will be happy to assist. http://www.pagelines.com/pros/

Almost a year has gone by on this question, so I thought I would see if there are any new solutions. I would like 5 carousels on a page, each linked to a different category that I already have set up. Somehow two show up (on one page), but on other pages, only one shows up. As far as I can tell, the page that shows two of them, is set up exactly like the pages that only show one... http://ceptestsite.com/alumni/alumni-profiles/

Hi, This is not possible with Platform Pro unfortunately. However, you can do this with PageLines Framework. All you need to do is clone the Carousel section. If you haven't tested PageLInes Framework, you can do so by clicking the link below and creating a demo site. http://demo.pagelines.com/

Danny, I am using the PageLines Framework. I have been able to clone the Carousel so there are Five on a page. I have set each up to show a different category, but then they don't show up....

Similar problem here. I use Framevork Pro. Cloned carousel 4 times. Only three of them - in any combination of them - appear at the same time, UNLESS all of them point to same category.

Any idea?

Italo, please open a topic of your own, since you're using a totally different product from these folks. Thanks.

Hello, 

 

I have similar problem to those above. I want to have 5 carousels, each showing photos from different post category. Right now only one is showing up, unless all pull from the same category. Could you please help? 

 

Thanks, 

Monika

Hi Monika,

 

It is simply not possible to achieve multiple Carousels using Platform Pro. However, this is achievable using PageLines Framework, therefore I recommend you upgrade to PageLines Framework.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
       
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
       
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
       
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
       
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
       
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
       
      Best regards,

      Hi!

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:


      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
